Blithe Spirit, Hay Fever, Private Lives: Three Plays Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In Blithe Spirit, Charles Condomine receives a visit from his first wife, Elvira; unfortunately, Charles is now married to Ruth, and Elvira is a ghost. The bohemian protagonists of Hay Fever wreak emotional havoc on a houseful of weekend visitors. And in Private Lives, a recently divorced couple find themselves in adjoining hotel rooms while on honeymoon with their new — and wholly unsuitable — spouses. Giddy, elegant, and serenely magnanimous in their appreciation of human vice and folly, these plays are Noel Coward at his sophisticated best.

Synopsis:

Written in 1941, concerns the predicament of a man who must face his imperious and jealous wives when they return from the after-life to haunt him. This is a humorous into the lives of a twice-married couple, who, having checked into a posh hotel, have nothing to do but eat, drink, bicker, make love, and congratulate themselves on their isolation from a world unworthy of them.
